- Chateau de Montreuil (Montreuil)
Tel: 03 21 81 53 04
This place is truly in a class of its own. For a special occasion, a meal here will be an experience you won’t forget in a hurry. Truly deserves its Michelin star – service, ambience, food and wine amazing! [A small section of the dining room can be reserved for private dinners of up to 12 people.]
It’s also possible to find tasty cooking on a smaller budget, especially on set menus at lunchtime. Below are a few of our favourite cafes for a good-value munch.
- Café Globe (Hesdin)
Bustling, buzzy café on Hesdin’s main square. Good lunchtime menu of classics – steak frites etc.
- Le Richelieu (Hesdin)
Extremely good value lunches (12 euros for 3 courses) and charming staff – sympathetic to vegetarian requests!
- Aux Mignardises (Le Touquet)
We were once told this café was officially the ‘third best creperie in France, outside of Paris’! A steaming galette and a cup of cider in here after a bracing autumnal walk along the beach at Le Touquet is perfect.
